Palin accuses Obama of backing 'death panel'
Talking points memo: "Obama's death panel could kill my down syndrome baby"
In a new posting on her Facebook account, former Gov. Sarah Palin today made a dire statement about health care reform -- that it could result in an Obama-created "death panel" killing her infant son with Down syndrome. "The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama's 'death panel' so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their 'level of productivity in society,' whether they are worthy of health care." [The "death panel" reference arises from a conservative backlash at a component of the proposed House health care overhaul that would provide Medicare funding for end-of-life counseling every five years.]
I'm not sure if I have ever hated her more, not even through the "he's a terrorist / kill him" utterings at her rallies. The America you know and love is apparently stupid enough to listen to this.
